I agree with you on our OL depth if we loose a player along the O line and do not have a quality back up all the off season moves may become useless. I don't think one injury would hurt us that bad but with the Oline we need to be prepared to play a game or two with 2 missing starters.

Re: Is there a position we CAN'T draft early?

I never really like QBs or RBs (or P/Ks :P) in the first round. RBs and QBs can have VERY short careers, whereas other positions (Especially OL/DL/CB) tend to have a better chance of sticking around and being useful.

OTs can also be reaches in the first round (for need) just like QBs...

for us, i also wouldn't consider a WR, cause they aren't that great ones this year and any guy we took would be the #5 at best this year. I wouldn't rule out safety, just in case jared allen or whitner really drops far (both are 4.4 guys and either could be like pearson and play both CB and S depending on the play).

Re: Is there a position we CAN'T draft early?

I voted WR because I think that is our deepest position. Personally, I'd have no problem with QB because I've never been sold on Campbell. We could use depth at LB, CB, OL, and DL. Another RB (if a really promising one fell and was a bargain at 53 is always good to have......not sure we can keep Betts around as a backup forever). TE would be a waste at 53.......wouldn't mind adding TE depth in a later round though.

Re: Is there a position we CAN'T draft early?

I agree w/whoever said Fauria is a temporary solution. But, it would have to be a great TE at 53 for us to take him, cause we only need a blocking tight end & they tend to be around in later rnds.
LB & CB seem highest to me, but if o or d line players look good, we can always use them. Remember Doc is a fa next year, somebody might throw big $ at him before we can resign him.
If John McCArgo is still there at 53, he's a steal. Some have said he's a potential 1st rnd sleeper but projected to go in the 2nd. btw, he's a DT from NC st.

Yes, I know. I'm smart like that.

I voted for QB, RB, WR, CB, S, K, P, and moderator. All the others need an injecton of youth, so take the player who's talents would be best used by the B & G then by any other team.

Re: Is there a position we CAN'T draft early?

This kind of reminds me of last year when a lot of us said "Wait, we already have Brunell and Ramsey. Why did we spend a first on another quarterback?"

Of course, I don't think people were necessarily bothered by spending the first on a QB, but the fact that we traded up to get that first"

WR, then RB, then QB.

We should get more secondary players, maybe a LB and a kicker.
